Comer Forgot the First Rule of Impeachment
The first rule is, of course, “There has to be evidence of an impeachable crime.” Or, to quote Rep Jared Moskowitz of FL, “The problem is when you sling mud, you have to have mud,” The GQP/GOP Farce Committee called three witnesses, Jonathon Turley, supposedly a Constitutional scholar, forensic accountant Bruce Dubinsky and Eileen O’Connor, a former assistant attorney general in the DoJ who were all dismembered by Rep Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka, AOC. She asked one simple question that immediately gutted the usefulness of all three witnesses: “In your testimony today, are you presenting any first-hand witness account of crimes committed by the president of the United States?” All three had to admit they had no real evidence, just suppositions. In fact, Jonathon Turley admitted that, based on what the republicans had, there was not enough evidence to support an impeachment.
Based solely on AOC’s ability to “own” the republicans and her level-headed common sense leadership style, Democrats would be well served to nominate her for the 2028 Presidential election. If nothing else, it would be amusing to hear republicans howling that AOC, at age 38, is too young to be President, a complete flip-flop from their rants about Joe Biden’s age in 2023.
But, I digress. This post was about the breathtaking idiocy and incompetence of James Comer, the so called “Chairman” leading the House Impeachment Inquiry on Biden. The guy is so incompetent that even Republicans are calling the hearing “unmitigated disaster.” In addition to Turley’s admission that there’s not enough evidence, the “forensics accountant” Dubinsky said in his opening statement, “I am not here today to even suggest that there was corruption, fraud, or any wrongdoing. In my opinion, more information needs to be gathered and assessed before I would make such an assessment.” The GQP/GOP witness distanced himself from the accusations before the hearing even got started.
More telling, Comer and the GQP/GOP never invited or subpoenaed Rudy Giuliani or Hunter Biden’s business partner, Devon Archer. After all, Rudy the Mud on Face Lawyer is the one who started all the Hunter Biden accusations. Devon Archer as HB’s partner should be the perfect witness to tie HB to JB’s impeachable offenses but, for some reason, he wasn’t invited or subpoenaed either. Could it be because Archer has already testified that that there was no “there there.”
In moments of weakness, I almost feel embarrassed for Comer. It’s one thing for everyone to know you’re dumb as a rock but it’s in a whole ‘nother ballpark to enter the Kentucky State Fair Stupid Contest after telling a voter, “Here, hold my beer while I show you how stupid is really done!”
